Cessation Classes Available Free Of Charge

North Central Public Health District and the Hood River County Prevention Department are offering free tobacco cessation classes along with free nicotine patches, gum, or lozenges for those taking the classes.  The cessation classes are funded by revenue from voter-approved Measure 108 that took effect in 2022, which raised the tobacco tax by $2 a pack.  North Central Public Health District says in Wasco and Sherman counties nearly 15 percent of adults smoke, and over 44 percent of them tried to quit in the previous year.  To sign up in Wasco and Sherman counties, go to ncphd.org or call 541-506-2609.  In Hood River County, go to hoodriverprevents.com.
